that is causing concern in some parts of ukraine especially that almost the first decision taken kiev was toof abrogate the languages which was adopted two years ago after a very difficult process leading to adopting that agreement. obviously, it was seen, as we understand it by people in a number of regions of ukraine, as the effort of the people who found themselves in power in kiev, not to bring about a democratic society but to impose their political will on the rest of the country. what caused this is o of very bitter reaction in parts of the ukraine including crimea where they saw efforts to intimidate various political players. for example, this announcement that the so-called friendship ring will to send to crimea from region, there were people traveling from one region to another, youth groups and others, and that was obviously ,eant as a sign of intimidation exercising force and intimidation on various political factions in crimea. that is the way we saw it happening in kiev before. the international community needs to think about how to bring about this political process which was e

home in some way, shape, and that is it's clearly unstable in ukraine right now, both in kiev, clearly in crimea. what is that to the united states? >> i think it's very serious because if you have -- the first time really since the end of the cold war you have troops potentially moving on the borders of europe, nato is getting involved, at least discussing, looking very carefully, i think it's highly dangerous. it's a dramatic situation when you actually have armed forces. it did happen in georgia, but georgia was kind of different. here we are, right on the borders of europe. and i think, candy, you know, we have to -- john and i were ta talking about this before. we have to ask ourselves where president putin is going. a rational actor who would seem to have an interest in not having this escalate, but at the same time he is escalating it. why? and it would appear to me that we're kind of moving toward a conclusion that i hate to draw, but is that he really doesn't care, doesn't care very much what the united states does, doesn't care what europe thinks, he doesn't really think that
are only for self-defense. many in the ukraine don't expect the kiev government. they said yesterday that they don't recognize that occupation. and he will meet kerry in paris. actually, the russian foreign minister confirming that he will meet kerry tomorrow. he also has said up to the crimean and ukrainian authorities whether to invite international observers. this is part of a possible diplomatic solution to invite observers into the country to find out what's going on in that region and to make sure that those minorities and majorities, the ethic population in those two countries are protected. >>> china's parliament has set the growth target at 7.5 %, the same as last year. >> development through innovation, seek a new path of industrialization, i.t. application, urbanization and modernization with distinctive chinese features. accelerate transformation of the growth model, structural adjustments and industrial upgrading. strengthen the development of basic public service systems, ensure and improve the people's well being. >>> joining us now is the chief strategist at rio econo

. if fighting starts between those in the ukraine near kiev who want to identify with the west and the crimean region and russian troops who want to stay with russia or return to the russian federation, what's the likelihood of that and what would then be the u.s. response? there has to be some response more than there will be costs. >> reporter: yeah. well, you know, that is the big question right now. look, it would be just disastrous of course for the people of ukraine, the people of crimea and for stability in that region of europe. can nato step in diplomatically? there is talk about the u.n. security council. but of course, russia can veto that. somebody, i think most people believe that the road to solving this goes, you know, right to what vladimir putin has in mind. it's been to some very large extent, his call. but for the russian military, there would also be a military cost to an extended, large, significant operation, as they would move through various areas of ukraine, they will find people who do not support them and we have seen in so many countries in recent years how rapidly

. it has essentially detached crimea from the ukraine government's control. what remains unclear what vladimir putin wants to do with it, incorporate it into russia, use it as leverage to negotiate a deal with kiev, both? in any event, washington's response should be clear and forceful. russia has violated all kinds of laws and norms, including most crucially a treaty that it signed with ukraine guaranteeing that country's borders in return for which ukraine gave up its nuclear weapons. for washington, for americans, really for people around the world, it would be a terrible mess dent to allow issues like these to be resolved not by negotiations or diplomacy but by force. if russia can detach parts of neighboring countries with impunity, won't other great powers like china, decide that they, too, can act in similar ways. so what can be done? for starters, president obama should cancel entirely his attendance at the g-8 summit to be held in sochi in june. he should try to persuade the other major powers to follow suit. russia's membership in the g-8 should be suspended. the g-8 was cre

ukrainian government in kiev to broaden the government, and add more representation in ukraine where you have a heavy population, and can you explain how important it is and how the reception has been to that offer at this point? >> well, that is extremely important, because you are right, the eastern part of ukraine leans towards russia. this is a country that is fairly divided down the middle, and you can't say that one side is completely with the pro europe, and the eastern side is completely leaning towards russia, but it is a very stark contrast there and it is important for ukraine to move forward as a country and as a whole to have a dialogue between the two sides. remember that it is a government right now that is fairly young, and less than a week old, and usually they would be going about the business of the country, and the economy is doing horribly right now, and they need to kick start that, but they are dealing with the issue of russia, but they will need to have, have dialogue with those faction s ths that feel l they are being left out, and especially the pro russian prot

of ukraine. no need to. the drills were in the nearest region. and the message to the new government in kiev was clear: don't mess with russia in kiev, they gathered in the central square, scene of three months of protest to talk about the new government, a new future. but here in crimea, the trouble has only just begun. >> woodruff: to help us understand all of today's developments, we turn to: fiona hill, director of the center on the united states and europe at the brookings institution. her latest book is "mr. putin: operative in the kremlin." and nadia diuk, she's spent decades studying and visiting ukraine, and is a vice president at the national endowment for democracy. we welcome you both to the program, nadia diuk, giving these divisions we are seeing in this report and hearing about elsewhere, can this country hold together ukraine? >> i think what we saw in the film was basically about country$qah. i think the government being put together in kiev right now really is trying to address the issue of unity. there are people who have been brought into this line-up that would be voted

dissolution of all which is the relationship between russia and the ukraine. russian history begins in kiev, not moscow. >> why is that? >> long story, but they began in kiev and religion has its roots in kiev as well. certainly, vladimir putin was a state builder and someone who wants to reassert to some extent what he calls a eurasian union. >> of the eurasian union. >> belarus, central asia. at the core of that is russia-ukraine. yet within the ukraine, you have, until some days ago, yanukovych was loyal to moscow. you have the eastern part of the ukraine that speaks russian predominantly and leads towards moscow. there are all kinds of divisions here. what i would say is that yanukovych was awful. on the other hand, he was democratically elected. he was overthrown in the streets. he murdered dozens of his own people -- >> during the protests. >> absolutely. he was corrupt as corrupt could be. we are at a very familiar moment we have experienced over and over again, that excitement. it's that moment -- >> we think history is happening here. >> democratic institutions and the norms will t
